It is during times of dramatic transition that most people seek a counselor, therapist, coach or other personal change agent. Learning how to grow through difficult times of change can help eliminate pain and bring our solutions to an individual’s problems. I follow a methodology based on Skills for Change methodology. It is an approach to personal, relationship, family, and community change that recognizes the influence of systemic power on our lives and relationships, and thus generates understanding, choice, and opportunity.
My practice offers breakthrough methods of coaching, mediation, reiki and therapy for individuals, couples and families, and organizations.
When we work together, you’ll experience a nurturing, confidential environment for entering into the quiet, inner realms of your own values, your own past, your desired future, and your own thinking. A range of options are possible. We may take an in-depth look at behaviors that may have caused harm to your relationships and/or yourself, or an analysis of your life story, or career coaching for your next job, or re-defining of your highest aspirations, or all of these. And in the process, my change methods will help you solve YOUR problems and achieve YOUR goals.
I believe that individuals internalize and thus embody the values and beliefs which have surrounded us. Sometimes we are conscious of these internalized values and beliefs and we may then choose something different. But often we have internalized values, habits, practices, thoughts and stories that don’t reflect our values or our current state of power and safety. This method is unique in that we work through the body to create personal change by practicing skills for the future we want while releasing the patterns of the past, and recognizing the differences between what we can change and influence as individuals and what must be changed by collective action.
By acknowledging where we are powerless, we gain greater power over that which we can influence, and spend less energy trying to change something that we cannot impact by ourselves.
